Christiane Aman-purr must decide whether Egypt's revolution is a democratic uprising or an Islamic power grab. (3:29)

U.N. DOESN'T SEND IN

PEACEKEEPERS.

SO WHITHER NOW, EGYPT.

AT TIMES LIKE THESE, I ALWAYS GO

TO THE EXPERTS.

>> THERE WILL BE A NEW

LEADERSHIP IN EGYPT.

WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS.

>> WE TONIGHT KNOW WHAT'S GOING

DO HAPPEN POLITICALLY.

>> WE DON'T KNOW WHERE THIS IS

ALL GOING TO END UP.

>> WE DON'T KNOW REALLY WHAT IS

COMING NEXT.

>> WE DON'T KNOW WHO IS GOING TO

END UP IN POWER.

>> Stephen: THAT IS A PILE OF

JACK-SQUAT.

ANOTHER HOW DO WE KNOW?

HOW DO WE KNOW?

WELL, YOU KNOW, WHAT,

FORTUNATELY, SCIENCE PROVIDE THE

ANSWER.

AFTER ALL, TODAY IS GROUNDHOG

DAY.

OUR ANNUAL CELEBRATION OF PAGAN

ANIMAL PROPHECY.

FOLKS, IT'S NOT JUST GROUNDHOGS

MAKING PROF SEES.

IT'S OCTOPUSES PREDICTING SOCCER

GAMES.

AND THIS WEEK AN ORANG TAN

PICKED THE STEELERS TO WIN THE

SUPER BOWL, AND ANOTHER PICKED

THE PACKERS.

OH, MY GOD!

IT'S GOING TO BE A TIE.

OF COURSE, ON ONE LEVEL WE KNOW

IT'S RIDICULOUS TO WASTE PSYCHIC

ANIMALS ON SPORTS.

THEY SHOULD BE PREDICTING

REAL-WORLD EVENTS, AND WITH THAT

IN MIND PLEASE WELCOME THE

"COLBERT REPORT'S" SENIOR

FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT,

CHRISTIANE AMAN-PURR.

CHRISTIANE, THANK YOU FOR

JOINING US.

NOW, YOU-- YOU ARE AN EXPERT TO

EGYPT IN THAT ARE YOU WORSHIPPED

AS A GOD THERE

( LAUGHTER )

SO, CHRISTIANE, TELL ME, IN YOUR

OPINION, IS THIS REVOLUTION AN

HONEST EXPRESSION OF THE

DEMOCRATIC DESIRE FOR SOCIAL

MOBILITY OR IS THIS A DANGEROUS

PLOT BY THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

TO CREATE A PAN-MEDITERRANEAN

CALIPHATE.

CALIPHATE?

( LAUGHTER )

( APPLAUSE )

I FORGOT, CATS DON'T TALK.

TO GET A CLEAR ANSWER ON EGYPT'S

FUTURE, I HAVE MARKED TWO BOWLS

HERE.

THIS BOWL IS MARKED "DEMOCRATIC

UPRISING."

ALL RIGHT.

"DEMOCRATIC UPRISING."

AND THIS ONE IS LABELED "ISLAMIC

POWER GRAB."

( LAUGHTER )

ALL RIGHT, CHRISTIANE, YOUR

THOUGHTS.

( LAUGHTER )

HELP YOU MAKE A DECISION HERE.

WHICH IS IT GOING TO BE,

DEMOCRATIC UPRISING?

ISLAMIC POWER GRAB?

( LAUGHTER )

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

PUT A LITTLE LASER, A LITTLE

LASER DOT.

DOES THAT HELP?

SEE THE LASER DOT.

SEE THE LITTLE LASER DOT.

LOOK AT THE BEAM.

LOOK AT THE BEAM.

WHERE IS IT?

( LAUGHTER )

( APPLAUSE )

IT WON'T MAKE A CHOICE, SEE?

ADMINISTRATION.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
